I suppose your life is busy too, but then again I'm not reading your opinions of West Ham (unless you're on my blogroll on the left), so yes, deal with it. Not that my posts of doubtful pessimism could possibly have been missed by anyone bar Martin Lawrence at the BBC, who's uncanny ability to continuously predict West Ham to lose week in week out would have us in League Two in 3 years. He tops my pessimism.
Anyway I digress.
Since my last post not too much has changed, we're still challenging for Europe, and our injury list is still growing with the recent inclusions of Spector, Collins, Parker, and Kovac (until last weekend). I have a bad feeling that all of the backroom staff are due a good dose of swine flu to boot. Surely though porky Ashton would be more fitting - any excuse to play under 1 season's amount of games in 3 years - I tell ya, you just can't buy good help nowadays.
Let's all pray that the porcine predicament isn't within breathing distance of our simian manager Zola, who has truly done brilliantly with his first year in charge, and absolutetly deserves his new four year contract and a bonus banana. Clarke too deserves credit, especially at the back where his influence is noticeable both at West Ham and at any Chelsea team that is without John Terry. Clarke, no doubt, is our best signing in seasons.
That's all for now people, just a couple of lines to let you know I'm alive (however much I may wish otherwise post Radiohead listenings). Roll on Stoke this weekend, I say we come away 2-1 victors, they have nothing much left to play for sitting fairly comfortable in midtable, they'll be looking for a draw - hopefully we'll be taking the win. Di Michele to miss more than he scores.
